'Cause Baby, You ARE A Firework

July 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 160

This 4th of July week, as we make plans, prepare food, entertain friends and family, and pretty much forget to take the time to slow down until it is time to watch and enjoy the firework displays, we need to keep who we are in mind.Do you thrive off of all the busyness and people around you, or would you rather crawl in a hole?Maybe you are in between.Where ever you may land on the spectrum, you need to remember to be true to yourself so your colors can burst in just the way that gives you and people around you joy.Not bursting all over people, making them want to run from you.

First of all, assess your situation.Are you in control of the planning?If so, then you get to choose how big or small your celebration is and keep it in your comfort zone.You can also choose a menu that is nutritious, delicious, and able to be enjoyed by everyone, keeping people in better frames of mind as your celebration goes on.At a loss for a menu that can do this, check online, books, magazines, and even your own intuition.Email friends, check message boards, Facebook, and Pinterest (they have nice pictures so you can see what you are supposed to make).Keep your drinks high on the water index and low on the sugar and alcohol index.Most of the nation is HOT right now, so keep everyone hydrated.

Not in control of the planning, just attending?Prepare!First take some time out for yourself to calm your mind by doing something you enjoy.Brainstorm ideas for what you can do while at the celebration to help you calm and refresh if needed.Ideas - if by the beach, go for a short walk along the shore alone or with a trusted friend or relative.If there are pets around spend some time petting or playing with them.Tuck a good book in your bag so you can find a quiet space and read for a while.If you don't know what will be served (or know it won't be good for you), bring a favorite, nutritious food along to share with everyone and bring enough water to keep you hydrated throughout your day.

Don't forget to let loose a little and laugh, smile, enjoy the freedom of the day and the company of friends and those relatives you enjoy being around.As you keep your needs in mind, you are free to be you.You are free to let your personality shine, your true colors bursting forth.This is fun and others around you will pick up on it and shine along with you, creating the best fireworks of the day.'Cause baby, you ARE a firework.
